The purpose of this Plan is to highlight how Beech has changed since the Village Design Statement was written, considers broader aspects of village life and describes how villagers wish to see their main concerns addressed in the future. It is based on views expressed by Beech Villagers in a questionnaire, followed by a series of meetings and events. It was presented to Beech Villagers for comment and approval before submission to the Parish Council at its meeting on 21st May 2012. The Plan therefore provides a sound basis for ongoing community development, and informs councillors about local issues. It does not, however, form part of the Development Plan nor can it be used to determine future planning applications. This would require further work to develop a full Neighbourhood Development Plan.
